Great Manchester Run

Sunday 20th April saw thousands of runners take to the streets to participate in the Manchester 10k run. Five participants from Express Solicitors competed in the race, raising a fantastic amount of money for a variety of charities. Partners Robin Patey and Daniel Slade, Trainee Solicitors Sapna Kapoor and Alexandra Hirst and PA Karen Hardy are all pictured below with their medals. Taken days after the race, the smiles in the photograph surely betray some still very aching legs and feet!

Karen was running on behalf of Diabetes UK, the leading UK charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of all people affected by and at risk of diabetes. Robin was raising funds for Parkinson’s UK, a charity that has been working to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson’s for over 40 years now. Daniel ran in support of Cancer Research UK, while both Alexandra and Sapna pounded the pavements to help the Spinal Injuries Association, a charity which provides help and support to the spinal injury community. Express Solicitors would like to extend its congratulations to all the runners, and would encourage all to donate what they can to the named charities above, all of which are very worthy causes.
